misty mountain hop(ping)

I just got back from the mountains of Park City, Utah, to come home to the mountains of northern Colorado with enough time to unpack and repack to leave… for some other mountains in 36 hours. I AM NOT COMPLAINING. I had a lovely time at the Evo ’11 Conference in Utah. Rachael Herrscher, Jyl Johnson Pattee and their remarkable team managed the herculean effort of pulling this huge event off. Truly impressive and so much fun! So let me share some photos and keep the yammering to a minimum…

I tag-teamed with Aimee who delivered terrific fundamental photo tips, me on nature and landscape photography, Brooke (made us cry) with gorgeous, touching portraits, and Jenny, Kodak’s Chief Blogger, who highlighted creative, fun, and hilarious trends in photography.

When we were done, everyone hopped onto the Orange Bubble and rode to the top before getting turned around to head down for the closing keynote. I was the last to board – intentionally. I thought it’d be fun to catch folks coming back, sitting in orange bubbles way up in the air.

down means down

forget-me-not (no, i won’t forget)

thank you, evo ’11 and beautiful park city
